HS2 Protest Song — lyrics

(V1)
HS2 is smashing down the line
We wanna send it back to where the sun don’t shine
It’s making folk homeless, and choking them too
Breaking Human Rights laws under article (2)

(V2)
Destroying our buildings, hacking down trees
They rip apart communities and won’t hear our pleas
Our kids are exposed to toxic contamination
While government and big business collude against the nation

(Chorus)
We’ve got the HS2 Blues but we’re standing up united
Like David fought Goliath we won’t stop the fire’s ignited
Together we’ll oppose HS2 and what it’s blighted
Stop that train, stop that train, before they cause us all more pain

(V3)
HS2 is crashing round the bend
You know it’s gonna get you, and kill you in the end
Cause we already have unlawful levels of pollution
18 years of HS2 ain’t gonna be the solution

(V4)
Yes it’s a killer, a volcanic eruption
With corporate greed condoning death and destruction
50 billions obscene, you know it cuts like a knife
While austerity is causing such misery and strife

(Chorus)
We’ve got the HS2 Blues, but we’re standing up united
Like David fought Goliath, we won’t stop the fire’s ignited
Together we’ll oppose HS2 and what it’s blighted
Stop that train, stop that train, before they cause us all more pain

We’ve got the HS2 Blues, but we’re standing up united
Like David fought Goliath we won’t stop the fire’s ignited
Together we will stop HS2 and what it’s blighted
Stop that train, stop that train, before they cause us all more pain

We’ve got the HS2 Blues, but we’re standing up united
Like David fought Goliath, we won’t Stop the fire’s ignited
Together we will stop HS2 and what it’s blighted
Stop that train, stop that train, before they drive us all insane!
